    Quick and sloppy vid, I play tons of great songs really badly and/or incorrectly, just to add to the character. This was just to highlight what I was saying in the main JVM thread - I fucking love my Dual Rec, but now I've modded the Marshall it almost feels redundant, as the Marshall is now...

    She's the tightest Roadster I've heard, but I'm in the mood to neglect something else. Serial number VR1964. With amp cover, footswitch and its cover and cable, and manual. Currently with a Tung Sol or two and Chinese 12AX7s. I'm the original owner. Head is currently getting a thorough...

    Its kinda of Incredible on how the Oldy and Free Lepou sounds very similar to the real thing. Bias on the other hand...

    We have one of the first dual recs made (serial 50 or under or something) that's available to use at the studio for LP3. I'm hoping we may be able to use it somewhere for layering (our sound is JCM800's at the core). It's been forever since I've plugged into a recto, and I know our NoVa crew...

    i've had a couple of these over the years. i dig them. they seem to be based on the 2 channel preamp versions. does anyone know what revision they are based on? i'm looking for more info and coming up short.
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anyone know of any links to comparisons between the Line 6 HD500 or 500x emulating a Mesa Boogie ~vs~ the actual Mesa Boogie? Preferably the same player, guitar, FX, etc. Hoping to finally have the funds to pull this trigger soon and want to make sure the HD is what I want. I dig how it...

    Listen to this! :flex: https://soundcloud.com/tudio2-akt/thrash Instead of throwing in 2 million profiles per pack, they have just a few, from which I understand, are multimiced and "carefully selected" or something. I think the Rectifier pack only have like 7 profiles, but all sounds like...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    For those that have really explored the differences between these two, can you give me some insight? I suppose the most important comparison for me is the 5150 50 watt head vs the mini recto because I need a clean and I believe the 5150 LBX can't do a clean. I appreciate the 5150 50 has some...

    So I'm back playing in a band again and I've been comparing my amp with my other guitarist's amp as we play the same model, and I noticed something interesting about the effects loop in relation to volume. Mesa effects loops can vary by the year, so here's the one I have: The amp is a 3...

    Alright, time to slap a full retube on my reborn dual.. This is my first go at new tubes in this particular amp so I'd like to know what you guys are using, and I'll probably just order a similar set and do a little rolling when they come in.. I searched the site and got a bunch of info...

    Just been looking into Mesa 1x12 cabs, and I noticed the cab Petrucci uses in the 'proto playthrough' video doesn't seem to be available here in the EU. Looks like he's using the Recto 1x12, but all I can find here is the Mini-Recto 1x12 They look to be the same according to the specs listed on...

    So this one's a bummer, but the writing has been on the wall for a long time. When a young man undergoes the process of buying his first 412, deep in his heart he knows there are only two options. A Mesa Recto 412, or a Mesa Stiletto 412. Not having $1k to drop on a new cab, he buys whichever...

  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I need a mesa in my life. Any of you that have played both or are fairly knowledgeable of them, please feel free to provide your opinions. I want something that can get a good modern metal tone, be somewhat versatile between clean and dirty tones, and provide both a good sound at both bedroom...
  16. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I have for sale a mini recto that is about 6 to 7 months old, still has over 4 years of warranty left on it. I think there is about 2 hours max on this thing of play time. I just prefer to play my Roadking or EVH 5150 so this just did not get the play time. Amp is in brand new shape, as you can...

    I know you mg.org guys aren't really down with old school amps, or anyone generally glorifying things in the past especially when compared to their modern day counterparts, so please take this copypasta with a grain of salt: So I just bought this off of Brian Trifon (of Trifonic) as he said it...
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Wirelessly posted (iDevice of Awesomeness) Sold the DC-5 combo, and I'm putting together a head/cab setup based around the ROV25. I've got a bead on a used Recto 2x12 "compact", which is basically the old Stiletto 2x12, right? Does anyone have any experience with this, and how it compares to a...
